    It seems the most like kik to me - lots of the others will allow users to see your phone number (or require a number to register) and that’s a deal breaker for a lot of us.

    it’s also free, but I think you might see ads now in the header but that doesn’t bother me overly as long as it’s free.
    Skype isn't a safe platform. For example if you download the app on your phone and look up usernames of anyone and/or previous usernames someone used in the past, that person might put their real first and last name (You will be able to see on the app) which is dangerous. Not only that in the past there were resolvers that could potentially get an IP address just by looking up their Skype username. It's not safe at all and gamers don't prefer to use it.

    Kik ceo tweeted 3 days ago that he might have a new owner for kik. So we may not have to switch after all

    That would be crual for people who are about to change jobs.

    It was a big call for help from kik, I prefer thinking that someone heard. Could be worse.
